Pretty Pig Cake

I have a backlog of cake entries from as far back as May. I’m afraid I have no choice but to bore you with cake entries left and right…top and bottom. Promise to bear with me? *smiles sheepishly*

In July, a friend requested me to make her a birthday cake. She collects cuddly stuffed dolls, specifically, stuffed pigs. And for her birthday, she wanted a cake version of one of her favorite stuffed toys. She sent me photos of her cuddly toy/s in all angles.  This is what I came up with…

This was my first time to really carve a cake, small scale as it was. Sure, I’ve carved cake into mini bags, but those were regular shapes. I was a little bit nervous making this cake, but after a while, I became unusually and unbelievably calm and relaxed. I wish I could say the same for all my fun projects. Hee hee.

You have to love the suckling pigs! Yes to breastfeeding! Hee hee. :)

This is one of my favorite angles. Every pig has a curly tail, in my mind at least! :)

The pig, by the way, was carved from pound cake. It’s resting on an 8-inch chocolate cake. Yum-mee!

I love how this cake turned out. More so, I love how stress-free the cake decorating process went. So, I’ve so far made cake/fondant/gumpaste replicas of baby shoes, bags, princess dresses and just recently, a piano. What could be next?  Replica Ed Hardy? That should be interesting! Haha!

Have a great weekend, y’all! Cheers and mabuhay!

  1. Awww, the little piggies are so cute!

    And thanks for the shot from behind….I often see cakes that are only intended to be viewed from the front and the back is usually a mess, heh. Not the case here!
